Thanks for those links, some enlightening reading.
Good to see that people actually acknowledge something soldiers have been saying for years - too many ration packs = constipation - so it will be interesting to see the impact of this new type of ration on that side of things.

Considering that we get something like 70% of the water content needed to aid digestion, from the actual food itself, I wonder if they're going to expect or even ask, US troops to carry more water to help prevent problems like constipation... which kind of defeats the point of removing the moisture from the food in the first place?
